About SLS Nylon

SLS Nylon is the only Selective Laser Sintering material we currently offer (but watch this space). It is a very versatile option, that is strong, tough and has high chemical and heat resistance, much like Onyx. Choosing SLS Nylon will give you much greater design freedom than with other materials, as virtually any geometry can be built using this material - including complex lattice structures.

This material is well suited to producing large production runs of components, as the post-processing steps are less hands on, and can be largely automated.
